Happy International Women's Day + Sketch of Big Eye Fairy, Zinnia Flower, Angel, Goddess, Butterfly Bush + Nasturtium, & Mermaid/ March 3-8 / Art Sketches Daily...



"Blood of the Nile" Original Painting Sold, Giclee Prints & LE ACEO Prints Here

The original big eye Egyptian fairy angel goddess painting was sold a while back, but I thought she was perfect to wish you a Happy International Women's Day.  I hope this is a day filled with love.


This is a completed work, I also usually post at least one finished piece on Tuesdays if you'd like to come to visit!  You also may see some of my finished paintings at lisarusso.com if you'd like.

I'm a little early, but I'm going to try to join in this week with Paint Party Friday.  To see more participants, please visit:

===============================================


Here is a sketch of a big eyed maiden.  She seems to have a sweet curiousity...  I think she is most likely a fairy angel, although she could also be a mermaid or a goddess.  I'm unsure if I'll paint her or not, but I did enjoy sketching her.


I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in March. This is from day 3. 

This is a rough sketch.


Here is a sketch of some zinnia flowers.  They have a delicate abundance in their petals...  I'm unsure if I'll paint this sketch or not, but I did enjoy sketching it.

Here is a sketch of a big eyed deco maiden.  Her eyes are gently closed...  I think she is most likely an angel fairy, although she could also be a mermaid or a goddess.  I'm unsure if I'll paint her or not, but I did enjoy sketching her.

Here is a sketch of butterfly bush flowers by a nasturtium.  Butterflies do indeed love the flowers of butterfly bushes, they seem very drawn to them...  I'm unsure if I'll paint this or not, but I did enjoy sketching it.
